Rishi Persad presents coverage of the opening two first-round matches from the Waterfront in Southport, where the first players to win six frames will progress to the quarter-finals.
This is the second of three tournaments making up the Coral Series and Neil Robertson prevailed in the opening one, the World Grand Prix, defeating Graeme Dott in the final.
Robertson also reached the final here last year, meeting his match against Ronnie O'Sullivan, who prevailed 10-4 in the showpiece match.
With analysis by Stephen Hendry, Alan McManus and Neal Foulds, and commentary by David Hendon and Phil Yates.
